Kangana Ranaut Manikarnika Queen of jhansi

Mumbai, Dec 26: Actress Kangana Ranaut, who is gearing for the release of her forthcoming film “Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi”, says that people who criticise her at the drop of a hat will have to shut their mouths after watching the film.

Kangana was interacting with the media on the sidelines of her fashion designer friend Neeta Lulla’s Christmas celebration party along with Ankita Lokhande in Mumbai on Tuesday.

Talking about her critics, Kangana said, “I feel people who are not saying good things about me or my film will have to shut their mouths after watching the film and people who are saying good things, their mouths can’t be shut by anyone, this is what I feel.”

Kangana has turned director for the forthcoming film apart from playing titular role. The trailer of “Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi” has been receiving an overwhelming response from the audiences since its release.

Sharing her feeling about this positive response, Kangana said, “I feel that’s the result of a team work. Initially, I found it difficult but then, I felt that I can do justice to the film as an actor and as a director.”

“I think god has been kind and I am happy doing both roles. We are very excited for the release of the film. We just can’t wait to present the film in front of the audience.”

K.V. Vijayendra Prasad, who has written blockbuster films like “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” the and “Baahubali” series, has scripted “Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi”.

Asked about support she got from writers of the film, she said: “Writers have supported me really well during the film. Mr. Vijayendra Prasad is writing my next film as well.”

Asked about the genre of her next film, she said: “It’s a love story but not with a human.”

Kangana has worked with Anand L. Rai’s in two successful films “Tanu Weds Manu” and “Tanu Weds Manu: Returns”.

So did she watch “Zero” starring Shah Rukh Khan, Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif and she said, “I wish them all the best with their film’s release. I am very busy with work related to ‘Manikarnika – The Queen of Jhansi’ so, I didn’t have the time to watch the film but I will definitely watch it very soon.”

The film will hit cinemas on January 25, 2019.

Mira-shahid

Mumbai, Jan 19: Actor Shahid Kapoor says he and his wife Mira have a different approach when it comes to parenting. He says she tells him to calm down a bit when it comes to their two children, while he feels she is “too casual”.

Shahid opened up about his married life, parenting, his film career and more on an upcoming episode of “Famously Filmfare Season 2”, to go live on Colors Infinity, Colors Infinity HD, Voot and Jio on Sunday, read a statement.

On being asked if being protective about his children was a ripple effect of his parent’s separation, Shahid said: “My wife tells me that I am a little obsessive and protective and that I need to calm down a little bit. I tell her that she is too casual. Having said that, we try and find the middle ground which I think is good for the kids because you need to have both types of parents.

“If both are too obsessive or both are too careless I don’t think that works, so you need to find that balance.”

Shahid and Mira got married in 2015. They have a daughter named Misha and son named Zain.

Moving away from centrestage is heartbreaking for any actor: Abhishek Bachchan

Mumbai, Jan 19: Actor Abhishek Bachchan’s last few movies before his sabbatical that ended with “Manmarziyaan” were majorly second leads in big budget movies. He says it’s heartbreaking for any actor who has been at centrestage to move away.

Asked how much of a problem it is to stand behind a bigger star, he told filmmaker and “Koffee With Karan” host Karan Johar: “It is heartbreaking to any actor who has been centrestage to be shadowed by another actor in the lead.”

“The industry is a brutal place. I don’t think anyone is entitled to say that I am who I am so I deserve this. No, you have to earn it. Moving from centre to left is heartbreaking but you have to use that hurt to inspire yourself to get back into the centre again.”

In the upcoming episode of “Koffee with Karan”, to be aired on Star World on Sunday, Abhishek was joined on the couch by his sister Shweta Bachchan Nanda, a statement said.

Last year, Abhishek was seen in “Manmarziyaan”, which came two years after he featured in “Housefull 3”. He says his sabbatical from the industry was a result of a self-realisation about complacency towards his work.

Karan asked Abhishek: “Is there a reason you took this backseat from cinema, did you feel the pressure of what was happening in your career, that’s why?”

Abhishek replied: “It’s tricky Karan. I don’t think it was the pressure of what was happening. Rather it was more about my approach towards my work which I thought was incorrect. I was becoming very complacent and comfortable.”

“To call a spade a spade, I was part of huge films, huge budgets, huge stars, huge collections, everything was hunky dory. I had no pressure on me because I was standing behind somebody else who takes all the pressure. I was making lots of money and so were those films…it became very easy. I didn’t come to industry to stand behind anyone,” he added.
